Home Built Dog Sled???

Anyone ever build one before or know where to get plans?

One of my best buds has a full service woodshop and mad wood skills. I figured a DIY would be cheaper and be really neat.

Nothing real big. Just something to hook a couple of dogs to for a little fun on the farm.

If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.

Re: Home Built Dog Sled???

We did one years and years ago in the boy scouts...from what i remember...most of it was made out of bamboo...and we lashed it together...but the runners were made of thin oak ..heated and waxed...but that was like 35 yrs ago...lol

Come and try to take my guns!.you might meet my precious metal collection!

Re: Home Built Dog Sled???

Your link isn't working for me. May be the computer that i'm on.

I tried google and could only find generic plans or plans written on a sheet of paper. I have a pretty good idea, but was hoping for modern plans. Maybe mortise and tenon or Pocket Rocket instead of leather ties.

I have a dog/people supply sled Hanging in my barn. My dad and I made it for boy scouts 40 years ago. I can take pic and post if interested. It's a large sled pine with oak ski.

Re: Home Built Dog Sled???

Built several similar to above in my scouting days and good for the Klondike Derby but a team of dogs and hi speeds are another thing. I would beef it up,better handles and some kind of foot operated drag brake
